should prove to be the case at the Sandhill station, it would seem desirable in
raising feed for the herd at this station, on typical Sandhill soil, to ensile those
annual crops that can be produced at the least cost and that produce the most
desirable nutrients for milk production. There is evidence that a grazing system
which affords green feed throughout much of the year will result in better health in
the animals as well as enabling them to produce milk of higher nutritive value,
particularly ...

With suckler cows, milk production and changes in daily liveweight and body
condition were calculated from net energy balance. The net energy intake of
dairy cows and their body reserves at turnout to pasture were used to simulate
milk production at pasture, daily liveweight and body condition changes, taking
into account cow energy requirements and intake capacity. Heifer growth was
determined from heifer net energy intake and liveweight. Net energy intake was
used to assess ...

Pasture production is predominant in all regions, determining about 87% of total
national land use. Of the total national pasture area, about 85% is destined
towards beef production and only 1 5% towards milk production. Pasture for beef
production is most important in the Chorotega and Brunca regions where,
respectively, 94% and 90% of the regional pasture area is for beef production. On
the other hand, pasture for milk production is most important in the Central and
Norte regions ...
